CORRECTION: Visa and MasterCard funding returns to WikiLeaks via French payment gateway

By IDG News Service staff, IDG News Service |  Internet, Wikileaks

Due to an editing error, the story, "Visa and MasterCard funding returns to WikiLeaks via French payment gateway," posted Wednesday, incorrectly converted ¬800,000 to U.S. dollars in the 12th paragraph. The correct conversion is US$982,000.

The story has been corrected on the wire and the 12th paragraph now reads:

The organization has run on its cash reserves at the Wau Holland Foundation, which decreased from ¬800,000 (US$982,000) at the end of December 2010 to less than ¬100,000 at the end of June 2012, WikiLeaks said, adding that its reserve funds will probably expire within a few months. "In order to effectively continue its mission, WikiLeaks must raise a minimum of ¬1 million immediately," it said.

The story also has been updated; the update has the correct conversion.
